Discover Besançon on your own

Do you need to let go and refocus on the essentials? There’s nothing like a solo trip to take a step back and give free rein to your desires. At your own pace, as you wish, let yourself be surprised by the art of living à la bisontine. In a guest room or in a small hotel, find yourself in a quiet family cocoon. For the adventurous and those on a budget, there is also the youth hostel solution.

When it comes to going out, you’re spoilt for choice, day or night! Hikes and sports activities of all kinds, discovery of unmissable sites, guided tours of the city or signposted circuits to follow on your own, walks in Besançon by night, theme bars to meet new people…
